Gran Caribe Real chapel

Recommended Posts

Did anyone get their hair done at the Gran Caribe spa? I am a little nervous to get my hair done there. Also, those were gorgeous pics! Was that the resort's photographers? Has anyone used the resort's photographers?

I have spoken to 2 different ones already and they seem to be given alot of different option on pricing, but wheni checked it out on expedia, the package price was lower there that what I have been told. Any thoughts??



I booked a my guest a Wesjet Vacation through their groups department, and the price was really great. The catch was that u had to have the exact number of guest when requesting a group quote. So I would probably get a head count first and then talk to them to inquire a group quote. You should see at least $100 or $200 dollars off the online rates.

In June my fiance and I went to the Gran Caribe/The Royal for a site visit and we are so happy with everything!  The chapel is absolutely gorgeous!  We did a food tasting and were also impressed.  We did see some of the work of their photographers while we were there which we weren't all that impressed with. 

I inquired about adding a civil ceremony to the catholic cermony and was told that we could do it, and that it would be additinal 30 mins to the 1 hr catholic ceremony.  We feel like that's too long to ask our guests to sit in the heat.  We plan on legally getting married before we go to Mexico.

I looked into adding it on as well, but decided against it because would have to make it legal in home county anyway. Didn't want to spend the extra money on a civil ceremony in Mexico that wasn't going to be recognized in Texas.

We are also not adding the legal ceremony and just getting married in the states beforehand.  

 

Emily - what food choices did you taste?  Very interested in knowing what you're choosing for your menu!

We tried the vegetable salad With mint cream, Three lettuces salad, and Tomato salad with grilled zucchini. For the main course we tried Linguine with dried Tomato Sauce, Shrimp with jumbalaya rice, and beef tornedo. And for dessert we tried The Paris chocolate shell and seasonal fresh fruit. We chose the vegetable salad with mint cream, a choice of the shrimp or beef, and the Paris chocolate shell which was really good! I was impressed with all the food. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hey Ladies,

 

We are putting together our webinar schedule for BDW.  These webinars are great because not only can you get YOUR questions answered but also hear answers to questions from other brides that you may not have even though of :)

 

 

Webinars are a great way to not only hear directly from the wedding department but see the wedding packages that they offer, ceremony/reception pics, etc.

 

I try to only limit the webinars to once every 2 weeks so we of course can not do all resorts.

 

Please vote on which resorts you would like to have webinars on...you can choose more than 1.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
